Enjoying the Christmas Season

Mary took this picture from her iPad to send to Chet.
Last Monday, we finally finished the lights and the beads.
Libby (Elisabeth) sang in the Middle School concert with her friends Elizabeth and Elizabeth (yes - it's true!) with Macey accompanying them on the piano.  They sang What Child Is This and it was well done!
We had a lovely meal over at Gérard and Michelle's last night.  Michelle cooked a ham and then had 4-5 side dishes to go with it.  It was delicious!  What a treat to be able to spend time with them.

In the meantime, Josh and Joseph enjoyed their weekly Sunday dinner at Craig & Jenette's.  They host all of the college nieces and nephews every week, including some tag-along roommates.  Can you believe what a blessing that is for our kids?!  And Craig and Jenette's kids love it too, because it means Play Time!
 You can see my Dad here in the background too.  This week Mom signed up for hospice to come in and give her some aid.  We have no timetable, but he is deteriorating to the point that Mom needs some help.  I'm grateful she can get it!

Josh presented a paper this week at a the Research and Creative Works Conference at BYU-Idaho.  Way to go Josh!

Jesse is loving the mission work with her companion Maren.  They are going on splits with other missionaries as part of their leadership roles, and going to Mission Leadership Conferences as well.  Fun!

We finally finished putting on all the ornaments on the tree last night.  Mary took some fun pictures with her selfie stick.

We are enjoying this Christmas season!  We are so grateful for all of our blessings.
